So, here is what happens when I get bored....I go get some boards!
I bought a piece of plyboard and two staircase ballisters . The door came from Habit for Humanity...solid door with the insert replaced with peg board to add more stability. A table top will be added with L-brackets..legs are put on with L-brackets and then screwed in from top of table.
This bookshelf has been around since the early 80's. I think it has been found in everyone's bedrooms and has layers and layers of paint. Boys' rooms, as well as our daughter's..now it's time for the new location, the back patio, so let's cut it apart. I will take the top portion to make a shelf on the door and the bottom to stabilize the door and table. I pulled in an extra hand... and a talented one, at that.
Attached shelves to the door with L-brackets. The table top was attached on top and the painting began. I wanted an old, used look. The top of the bookshelf was turned upside down and attached with L-brackets for a shelf.
La-Te-Da....this is what you do with a door, bookshelf, ballisters and plyboard!!!
Here is the finished product, my potting table!!! I bought more red plastic baskets to place things on the shelves. I also wanted to use it as a serving table when we eat outdoors. I painted the top of the table to look like a table cloth.
I dressed the table up differently and served dinner outside! So, multiple uses! Now you see what I can do when I get bored. I am hoping it survives the storms...I don't have a covered patio and as soon as I finished, here came the rain! I am not complaining...Ben's garden needs the rain.
Are you creative when you get bored?
